DC Urban Farm Bike Tour - May 21st

This sounds like so much fun, just had to pass it along! It's a bike tour, to some really cool community gardens and farms, followed by a happy hour. What a great way to spend a Saturday!

The 12-mile bike tour will travel between 5 dynamic, urban growing spaces around the nation's capital.

The day begins at 1pm at the Mamie D. Lee community garden (100 Gallatin St., NE) in Fort Totten. By 6pm, we will have made our way by bicycle to the Washington Youth Garden, The Farm at Walker Jones, the Marion Street Intergenerational Garden, and Common Good City Farm for tours, talks, and workshops — all activities are free and open to the public.

Things will wind down with a happy hour at Big Bear Cafe, featuring seasonal cocktails and other tasty goodies. (Note: you'll need to bring a little cash for food and drink at the happy hour.)

Please bring a bike lock, water bottle, and helmet. More details can be found here. For questions, or to RSVP, please contact Ibti.

  1. What a cool way to spend a Saturday! Now if only I could find a place to rent a bike for the day…

  2. Hi Betsy! Thanks for the shout out. It was a lovely event on a downright perfect day. Here's hoping I can be involved with similarly food-focused bike tours in the future….
